Load balanced cluster with Raspberry Pies

Posted 08-13-2013 at 04:19 PM by Pyplate

I finally got around to doing it. I've set up a 4 node Raspberry Pi cluster. It's not that powerful, but setting it up has been good practice.

I used an old PC running Lubuntu as a load balancer. I just installed Apache and I'm using Apache's balancer module. I installed Lubuntu because I'm using a very old PC that has 512MB of RAM. The PC is more powerful than the cluster, but if I just used the PC as a server, I wouldn't have learned anything about load balancing.
